I got the Romanian Point Lace cord couched down last night...or was it the night before? The days are beginning to blur. I still need to hide my ends and secure some joinings. I played with needlelace last night for about a half hour. There is so much potential in this design. Do I focus on the heart shapes or de-emphasize them? I did keep track of how much cord it took. I had 100 inches of cord made and after I finished couching, I had 59 inches left, so it took 41 inches. I thought it took more than that. And then after that, I found a bunch I already had made up in the RPL drawer. I have a couple of 3 drawer plastic storage units. I've designated drawers for RPL, bobbinlace, knitting (which took up 3) and I think I have embroidery or - oh, stitchery kits in another. I have more stuff than what will fit in the drawers but I was trying to organize the newer crafts, like bobbinlace and RPL, which I don't have a lot of supplies for yet, into one place.

Dear Tami is being very patient while I finish up her package. I thought I was done and then decided to do something which is taking another day or so, but I will have it mailed out before I draw the next winner.

As for now, I'm going to try to get in an early night!


  1. That pattern looks like it's going to be fabulous when you're done. You're of to a good start!

  2. Why, oh why don't we have more time for fun? I really want to try RPL... I just don't have enough time! I can't wait to see what you do with this!

  3. That is beautiful! I've always wanted to try RPL. Any pointers?
